Quantum entanglement through the lens of computation and cryptography
Henry Yuen, University of California at Berkeley
Quantum entanglement was once a philosophical peculiarity in physics — Einstein famously derided it as spooky action at a distance. Alongside wave/particle duality and the uncertainty principle, entanglement was just another bizarre feature of quantum mechanics. However, the study of quantum computation and quantum information has established entanglement as central to the story that connects quantum physics, computer science, and information theory.
Short film festival + public lecture by Martin Laforest
Join us for a night of film and science. The Institute for Quantum Computing has partnered with the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore to host a festival for quantum-inspired films. The screening of the top 10 short films will be followed by a lecture by Senior Manager, Scientific Outreach, Martin Laforest about the applications of quantum devices. He will delve into what we know quantum devices will be used for (that will affect everyone) and where researchers are hoping they will be used in the future.
